NS Bikes Snabb Trail MTB Frame (No Shock)

The brand new Snabb platform was designed with the aim to optimise function, weight and reliability. Impressing the public with gimmicks, “patents” and “systems” was not on NS Bikes’ list. So here it is beautiful, light, strong and fast.

They took into account that NS Bikes customers are usually tough, aggressive riders and expect their products to hold up to seasons of abuse. But at the same time they made sure that everyone, including the team riders will be happy with the performance on race day.

The Snabb T is best described as an aggressive trail bike with a slightly steeper head angle, 143mm of travel, modern geometry and tough but lightweight construction.


The frame has a very long front end, but the compact chainstays keep the wheelbase at bay.  The Snabb T will work best with a 140 to 160mm fork which give a respective 67.5 or 66.5 degree head angle.

Suspension and Kinematics

The frame has a good amount of antisquat built into the horstlink design, perfect for 1X drivetrains which tend to produce more squatting than traditional 2X setups. After many prototypes they achieved the desired suspension curves which make for a fantastic ride that gives a feeling of support but at the same time allows full range of travel to be used. The 4bar Horst link suspension has a significant amount of rearward axle movement which helps to absorb square faced bumps. The system, unlike most other designs on the market (including virtual pivot designs) is immune to brake jack (i.e. the torque generated by the brakes will not cause the suspension to stiffen).
